Old Fashioned Sloppy Joes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by poorboy7325

Like most old fashion recipes, this sloppy joe is not super spicy but is a sweet and tangy variety. Try this recipe once and you'll throw the can sauce away for good. Old Fashion Sloppy Joe can be cooked and served immediately but is even better reheated the day after.

I really hate leaving poor reviews but I followed this recipe to a tee. And there was way too much ketchup. I have looked this recipe over & over again to make sure I got it right. It calls for 1 (26 oz. bottle of ketchup), is that a misprint? Perhaps the ketchup amt. is correct & just too much for my taste.
